Tag, I'm it.

She Who? tagged me for my first meme. I'm so honored!

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book. (of at least 123 pages)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

My book is The Other Bolyen Girl by Philippa Gregory.

"The Bible orders a man to choose between sisters and to stay with his first choice. Anything else is a cardinal sin."

Lord Henry Percy laughed, "I'm sure I could get an indulger," he said. "The Pope would surely grant me a dispensation. With two sisters like this, what man could be made to choose?"

I finished this book before Thanksgiving. I admit it, I bought it because it's going to be a movie soon and I'm very picky about reading a book before seeing a movie. I'm also very picky about how books are made into movies. I'm still mad at The Firm for completely re-writing the entire ending of the book. WTF?

Anyway, it's a very good book, lots of history without being boring. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie, if only for the costumes. Those dresses were gorgeous but I bet there weren't very comfortable, especially in the heat and humidity.

I tag MP, Lynn, Andrea, Frogdancer, and Kelly.

I just read Atonement for the same reason...meh. I think I could have seen the movie without the book this time.

I did mine! I had such a hard time getting through The Other Bolyn Girl..I don't know why since I LOVE the period. I'll see the movie for sure!
